Specific Herreshoff Vessels / Re: Queen Mab
« Last post by robin.sheehan@gmail.com on October 22, 2018, 06:48:24 PM »
Hi Laurie,
I just picked up on this trail - It's been a long time on the system - while investigating the Queen Mab.  All because of a little tray that has been kicking around in our family for a while...  I have photos - attached.

Who knows if they belong to "your" Queen Mab, or the three mast behemoth that went before!

Do you recognise the tray?

Incidentally, I know that the Queen Mab that used to race with the WASP was built on the Clyde in Scotland in 1892, and registered as the Queen Mab, a Cutter!

Kind regards,

Robin

Hi Charles.  The registry shows you to be in Noank.  Can you confirm your email address?  I'll get you on our contact list.

You can email me directly at davechub@gmail.com

Always great to make another "S" contact!

I would like to participate in the upcoming 100th anniversary events with my Sboat Nightmare. I need information on sails (where to purchase) and any other information for the events.

Thank you, Teeter, for your help. It is useful to know, as I suspected, that the stainless steel  metal fittings were indeed original to the HMC build of some boats of this vintage.

I do not have access to the full run of 12 1/2 contracts but see that hull#1241, delivered 6/11/1935, has a contract that specifies "Stainless Steel Fittings".

Restoration / SS hardware on a 12 1/2 ??
« Last post by DpMorton on September 29, 2018, 02:58:16 AM »
Greetings!
I have been on the hunt for a 12 1/2 and came upon a 1936 vintage. It had stainless steel for all the deck hardware, including the traveler and the chainplates!  I thought this must have been the result of an extensive restoration, until I saw another 1936 boat with exactly the same hardware! I believe this must actually be original equipment. Did HMC run out of bronze for a time in the mid 1930's? Anyone know the build history of the HMC 12 1/2 with regard to bronze vs stainless steel?

I actually think saving up for a Torqeedo is the best option. The other solutions vary from dodgy to very dodgy from what I've seen.
